Sine Qua Non

Jun 13, 2014

I’m a huge proponent of a great braided up-do. It’s one of those hairstyles that you can wear to pretty much anything (The Topknot’s twisted cousin). That’s why I was so excited to hear that local Chicago salon, Sine Qua Non has launched their Style Bar, available every other Friday night in their Lakeview location. Right before you go out, you can get a braided ‘do or blowout for just $35, and a makeup touchup for $15! Seriously a dream come true for a constantly busy girl on the go. My friends Mary, Laurie, Monica and Maria and I were lucky enough to get to preview it for ourselves — and of course, we had so much fun shooting with Monika afterwords! My friend Mischa has some serious talent in the milkmaid braid category, right? Here are some fun snapshots from the shoot!
